"A teacher accused of hitting a child with a ruler, but never prosecuted, has won a legal battle to have her DNA sample and fingerprints destroyed.
Philippa Jones, from Birmingham, was arrested in June last year following allegations she hit a boy aged eight.
The High Court said her DNA sample, fingerprints and photograph should have been destroyed within 28 days.
She will also receive £250 damages from West Midlands Police for false imprisonment and assault."
So do they now have to destroy all DNA records of those not prosecuted? Would this also apply to those who are prosecuted but found not guilty?
If anybody knows the answer please let us know. If not I'll make further investigations.
